Report of Library Trustees 



To th<e Citizens of Enfield: 

The Directors of the Enfield Library Association in present- 
ing their annual report wish to call special attention to the in- 
crease in circulation of both books and, magazines, 10,251 being 
the number taken in 1932 and 11,253 in 1933. 'We have 
in the library 9,337 books, non-fiction 4,439, fiction 3,169 and 
juvenile 1,729. During the year 119 books were purchased, 
one non-fiction given by Rev. John S. Curtis, one by K. K. 
Kawakami of Washington, D. C. and 19 juvenile by the Miass. 
State Library Commission. We appreciate these gifts and 
thank the donors. Two large maps have been purchased by the 
association, one an official survey of Vermont, New Hamp- 
shire, Massachusetts, Connecticut and Rhode Island with 1930 
census index. The second is a paved road map of the United 
States. 

Through the agency of Robert E. Davis (a native of Enfield) 
the Enfield Library Association subscribed for the Atlantic 
Monthly, Harper's Magazine, Forum, Popular Mechanics, 
Country Life, Good Housekeeping, St. Nicholas, Woman's! 
Home Companion, Scientific American, ; Cosmopolitan, Review 
of Reviews now combined with Wood's Work, Ladies' Home 
Journal, American Boy, Scribner's, American Magazine and 
the National Geographic Magazine. Boy's Life and Outlook 
were sent by the State Library Commission, Miss Nellie E. 
Brown gave McCalls Magazine and Miss Caroline Fox of Ar- 
lington, American Forests. The Engineering News Record was 
added to this list in July. This magazine (a weekly) gives 



38 



news of progress in the Engineering and Construction field, in- 
cluding interesting articles relative to the Quabbin Reservoir 
project. 

Through the courtesy of the School Committee and Selectmen 
in allowing the Enfield Library Association the use of the, 
school room made vacant by the consolidation of grades three 
and four, the library has been made more convenient and at- 
tractive. New book stacks and a large reading table have re-l 
llieved the crowded condition, and it has provided space for the 
.display of several line pieces of antique furniture and por- 
t traits given to the association many years ago. Patrons often 
express tneir pleasure in using the new room. 

During "Children's Book Week," observed annually in 
Massachusetts, the pupils of all the grades in the local schools-, 
.under the capable direction of their teachers, gave an afternoon 
program of recitations and music. Miss Marion A. Smith, 
President of the Enfield Library Association, presented on be- 
half of the Mass. Board of the Free Public Library Commis- 
sioners 93 certificates to pupils who had read the required five. 
, books, and 14 honor certificates to those who had read 20 bopks> 
five being non-fiction. This 'is the largest number of certifi- 
cates presented and denotes cooperation of teachers, pupils and 
-librarian in the use of the fine juvenile department of our |li* 
.brary. 

In again securing Mrs. Charles A 7 . Downing as our llibrariaru 
for the ensuing year, we know the patrons of .the library will 'be 
faithfully served and the interests of the library promoted. 

The directors feel sure the citizens of the town will be 
pleased to grant, as they have for so many years, the income :of 
the dog fund for the use of the library and would appreciate an 
appropriation.

Report of School Committee 



To the Citizens of Enfield: 

Your School Committee submit the following report: 

Nine regular meetings and one special meeting of the School 
Board have been held this year, at which regular and special 
business have been conducted. One meeting was omitted because 
of a member's illness. The regular meetings are held the third 
Monday of each month except July and August. 

We were very* fortunate in retaining the services of our three 
teachers for another year, and we wish here to express our ap- 
preciation of the excellent work each is doing with the pupils in 
her room. 

Miss Marshall and Miss Neumann are working together this 
year as last, with the "Girl Reserves" and the 4-H Club for 
boys, as extra curricula. The outstanding feature of this work 
was an exhibition and sale of their handicraft, with a play well 
presented. This, together with Mother and Daugiiter banquets, 
is given to raise money in order that members may pass a week 
at camp in the summer. While the 4-H Club members enter a 
contest with others of Hampshire County in this work, and the 
prize winning boy is given a week at camp, much credit is due 
these teachers for the interest they manifest in this work with 
their pupils. 

Mucn credit is also due Miss Chase for the excellent work ac- 
complished with her pupils in establishing a firm foundation for 
the higher grades. 



43 



In May the usual Health Day program was observed on the 
school grounds, with cards for posture, weight and teeth given 
by Miss Austin, our School Nurse. There was an extra large 
attendance to witness the exhibition of the health exercises. 

Graduation exercises were held in the chapel in June at which 
time six pupils received diplomas. Rev. Rockwell C. Smith of 
Ware gave the address of the day. 

The "Book Week" exercises, held in November were held this 
year in Miss Marshall's room. A pleasing program was pre-t 
sented. Pupils from the room of Miss Neumann gave the first 
part, Miss Marshall's the second part and the pupils from the 
room of Miss Chase, the third. The program consisted of read- 
ings, songs and two original Thanksgiving stories by two of the 
pupils in Miss Marshall's room. At the conclusion of this pro- 
gram, ninety-three state reading- certificates and fourteen honor 
certificates were presented by Miss Marian A. Smith, president 
of the Enfield Library Association, in behalf of the Massachu- 
setts board of free public associations. These certificates are 
presented to pupils who have read from five to twenty of the ap- 
proved books on the state list. This stimulates a desire for the 
better books. 

The pupils of the different grades, with their teachers, sang 
carols in different parts of the town before Christmas. They 
were enjoyed to a great extent. 

We were very fortunate in retaining the services of Mrs. 
Beaumont as music supervisor. Here we wish to express our ap- 
preciation for the good work she has done. We wish to extend 
to Miss Austin, our school nurse, our appreciation for the excel- 
lent service she has rendered. 

A radio has been installed in the grammar school building 
for the educative programs which are now given over the air. 
We have added new books to our school library. Many minor 
repairs have been necessary, among these the redecoration of the 
primary room, which was greatly needed. 



44 



We ask that the report of Superintendent, School Nurse and 
Music Superv'sor be carefully read. 

The committee ask any parent, guardian or teacher who have 
problems relative to the schools which they wish solved to visit 
the Superintendent with them. We can assure you one will al- 
ways find a sympathetic, helpful advisor and one quick to act. in 
Mr. Knight. 

We respectfully ask that parents and guardians sign and re- 
turn promptly to the teachers the slip sent them, explaining the 
cause of any absence or tardiness of the pupil. This is a state 
requirement., as found in the School Laws. 

We have reduced our expenses the past year and hope to do so 
in the year to come. 

The committee at this time wish to extend to the citizens of 
Enfield its hearty thanks and appreciation for their cooperation 
and assistance in any way for the welfare of the schools, and for 
the excellent support given by Ueir generous appropriation and 
goodwill. 

Respectfully submitted.

Report of Superintendent of Schools 



To the Enfield School Committee: 

I submit my annual report. 

The past year has been a crucial one in the field of education. 
Throughout the nation, schools have felt the depression. Liter- 
ally thousands of children in the United States are being denied 
the privilege of education which, unless it is now given, 
cannot be made up at some later date. Even in Massachusetts, 
the state that holds an envious record as an educational leader, 
cities have had school activities curtailed by the diminishing of 
the school budget, and the smaller communities in the state in 
many instances have either cut salaries or have caused teachers 
to make "voluntary" contributions to public welfare. 

It is a matter of considerable satisfaction that in Enfield no 
gifts have been solicited, no cuts have been made, and no cur- 
tailment of the budget because of economies enforced by the de- 
pression has taken place. Much care has been exercised in ex- 
penditures, as has been true in past years, but the schools have 
functioned with trained teachers whose salaries have remained 
intact. New books have been bought when needed and the reg- 
ular amount of supplies has been forthcoming at all times; 
also a substantial unexpended balance is indicated, all of which 
points to the careful management of the school committee in 
conducting the affairs of the schools. In addition, it should be 
pointed out that the enrolment is practically as large as it has 
been for the past two years, and the number leaving grade 



46 



eight in June was actually larger than was the case a year ago. 

During the year the regular health work has taken place. 
Physical exaniinati : ns have been given by the school physician. 
assisted by Mis? Austin. The follow-up work of the Chadwick 
Clinic was made possible through the efforts of friends who fur- 
nished transportation to the clinic held in Bel chert own. A dental 
clinic, sponsored by the Hampshire County Branch of the Amer- 
ican Red Cross served the children of the schools. The response 
to this clinic was fairly good, and as a result many children had 
work done without going out of town. The reports of the nurse 
and music supervisor follow this report, and many activities of 
the schools are mentioned in the report of the secretary of the 
school committee. 

In cl:sing this, my eighth annual report and the thirtieth of 
union superintende::s. I wish to express my appreciation of the 
vigilance and cooperation of those whose immediate concern is 
the welfare of the schools, and particularly to you as a commit- 
tee for your support and counsel at times when it has been most 
"eezLrd. 

Very respectfully submitted, 

HERMAN C. KXIGHT

Report of Supervisor of Musk 



51 Amity Street, Amherst, Massachusetts 

Jan. 23, 1934 

Mr. H. C. Knight 
Belchertow?i, Mfoss. 
Dear Mr. Knight: 

I submit the following report for music in the Enfield schools 
for the past year. 

Visits were made by the supervisor throughout the year as 
scheduled, and work planned was carried through as nearly as 
possible. 

Music from the regular school work was provided by the chil- 
dren for a number o'f programs during the year, including 
Healtn Day, Commencement, special days and a Grange meet- 
ing. 

A rhythm orchestra was started in the lower grades — a real 
delight and help to the children. This orchestra performed on 
Health Day. 

The supervisor wishes to thank Mr. Knight, the schobl com- 
mittee and the teachers for their splendid cooperation through- 
out the year. 

Respectfully submitted, 

GRACE D. BEAUMONT 

Music Supervisor

The pupils were weighed and were inspected five times dur- 
ing the year. The parents are informed of the pupil's weight 
and height by the means of the school report card. 

The teachers have a regular morning inspection of pupils, 
and a definite period is allotted for instruction in health mat-< 
ters. 

The annual Child Health Day exercises were held in May 
Health Tags, issued by the Massachusetts State Department of 
Health, were awarded the pupils who had the following require- 
ments : ' 

Physically Fit Tags : No physical defects and of standard 
weight 



49 



Teeth Tags: A dental certificate 

Improvement Tags: Improvement in posture, weight, or 
health habits 
The report of the tags awarded : 

Pupils enrolled 81 

Physically Fit 28 

Teeth 4 

Improvement 53 

In June the annual summer round-up was held. Seven 

children were given thorough physical examinations by Dr. 
Segur, assisted by the school nurse. 

Notices of the defects found were given to the parents and 

they were also advised concerning protective immunization and 
vaccination. 

The report of the annual physical examinations by the school 

physician, Dr. Segur, and the Red Cross Clinic dentist, Dr. 
Hall, assisted by the school nurse, is as fellows: 

Pupils examined 82 

Pupils with no defects 8 
Physical defects found: 

Nutrition 3 

Posture 2 

Teeth 72 

Throat 10 

Nose 1 

Glands 10 

Skin 2 

Heart 2 

The parents were notified of the defects found. 

In October, the Chadwick Clinic follow-up was held in Bel- 
chertown. Two* children from Enfield were X-rayed and given 
thorough physical examinations. Both children had shown 
marked physical improvement during the past year, 



50 



A dental clinic, under the auspices of the Hampshire County 
RedXross, is now being held at the Enfield schools. Money 
frcm the Whiting Street Fund is being appropriated for the 
dental work of children whose parents are unable to have this 
work done. 

I wish to thank you, Mr. Knight, Dr. Segur, the teachers, and 
the parents who co-cperate with me in sending out from a tem- 
porary town the value of which can be estimated, boys and 
girls with permanent health, the value of which can never be 
estimated. 

Respectfully yours, 

CATHERINE L. AUSTIN, R. N.
